Puppy Teeth/Adult Teeth Growing on Top Problem?

So Heidi had some blood in her mouth yesterday, and I figured it was from a tooth coming out, but figured I'd check anyway. I noticed a gap where a tooth had been, but more disturbingly, noticed that both of her large canines are erupting, but the baby teeth aren't falling out.

I'm concerned because I've read if they don't fall out, they will cause the adult teeth to erupt in the wrong spots, which can cause a considerable amount of pain. I guess we'll have to go to the vet on Monday, but I'm worried about having to put her under if that will be required?

This puppy is the reason you should have an emergency fund, she is going to bankrupt us.

From what I know that typically requires anesthesia and extraction. Though from what I noticed in the vet clinic I worked in was that it was fairly common and a lot of dog owners didn't even really notice. I don't remember the vet talking about permanent damage as they came in with these clients, but that they did have to be removed.

I was afraid of that. I guess I'll call tomorrow morning and get her an appointment.

Take her to the vet, she needs an xray of her mouth to see how much space there is up in her gums.

Was she a rescue or did you get her from a breeder? These kind of issues are quite often genetic.

@Esand - She was from a breeder. I'm surprised she didn't mention anything. I'm actually quickly losing faith in breeders.

Update: One of the teeth has fallen out on it's own, hopefully the other will follow suit. Regardless, we have a vet appointment on Friday.

I hate teeth. Anything regarding loose teeth or losing teeth just creeps me out big time.

Is the other one loose at all? I know I've had at least one dog with this problem and they did fall out pretty soon after I noticed it. Within days, I think.

But, I'm not as good as I could be with puppy tooth care...because they are loose and I just can't.

Oh man, that's how I feel if a nail is loose/cracked. Something about it makes my tummy go all flip-floppy. I just tried to wiggle it, and it does not seem loose at all, but time will tell.

I would watch it. I don't think a vet is going to want to put her under just for that. From what I saw the vet would wait until the dog is spayed and then extract it if it needs to be extracted then.

Update!

Through some nice chew toys and some tug with me and Levi, Heidi's teeth have successfully fallen out.
